A generic source for all 77 notaries held by the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) for district judiciaire of Bedford.

Records of 22 notaries are located at BAnQ Vieux-Montréal and the remainder at BAnQ Sherbrooke. There are no on-line images for the 22 at Vieux-Montréal. At Sherbrooke, 15 of the 55 notaries do not have on-line images. Images may be of the following types: répertoire chronologique (notary’s chronological index), index de noms (alphabetical index) and actes (actual legal documents). Expect a notary’s records to be inconsistent either because the original documents have been lost or the pages yet to be scanned and uploaded. Currently only six have actes.

CN502 identifies notaries as a group at Sherbrooke and CN611 at Vieux-Montréal. Individuals are identified by an S number; for instance, CN502,S47 represents Joseph Gingras on file in Sherbrooke and CN611,S7 represents Ernest Fleury at Vieux-Montréal . The Sherbrooke notaries cover the years 1799 to 1925 and Vieux-Montréal notaries 1879 to 1956.

Notaries with images can be accessed here. Under “Par district” in the left hand column click on "A á K" then “Bedford”. That will bring up a list labelled “Estrie District judiciare de Bedford”. Under the light orange heading is the statement “Le signe * indique que le texte des actes is disponible”, in other words, legal documents may be seen for notaries indicating an *. If one clicks on Théophile Amyrauld, his page appears and then any of repertoire, index or actes can be clicked to view the images. For some reason BAnQ omitted Louis-Joseph Jodoin,CN502 S24, from the list of notaries with images. To see Jodoin's index of more than 500 pages go to his profile page and at the upper right click on the box that has "voir les image(s):556".
